MPower: Musicians for Mental Health

11/20/2003:   In October, the National Mental Health Association launched “mpower: musicians for mental health,” a campaign that harnesses the power of music to raise awareness about mental health and substance abuse issues and encourages teens to seek help when they need it.

Supporting artists include Michelle Branch, Jackson Browne, Vanessa Carlton, Jennifer Holliday, James Taylor, and Third Eye Blind.

To kick off the campaign, NMHA has unveiled mpoweryouth.org, a website that allows teens to share their real-life stories and features messages on the importance of mental health from top musicians.

Through concerts, special events, media outreach, PSAs and educational forums, mpower’s supporting artists and youth leaders hope to raise awareness about mental health and substance abuse.
